Look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves. Many a mickle makes a muckle. Haba na haba tujaza kibaba. Whichever way you choose to say it…by collecting lots of small things we end up with something big.
That’s why we are launching Vision Africa’s inaugural Haba Na Haba Initiative. From the 1st to the 30th of April we want as many individuals, schools, churches, youth groups, businesses and other organisations to do something small to make a big difference in the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in Kenya.
This year saw the launch of the Global Goals known as Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). SDG 4 seeks Quality Education for all which ties in very closely with Vision Africa’s work through programmes such as:
- Education Initiatives including Early Childhood Development centres and after-school tuition programmes in urban slums
- Special Educational Needs schools
- Seed of Hope Vocational and Enterprise training centres for young people
Over the years we have seen young lives transformed through these programmes. A young boy who joined an ECD centre malnourished and unable to play graduating as a healthy child with a great foundation for learning. A child written off as mute brimming with pride as he starts to speak. A young girl whose goal in life was to own a pair of shoes now running a successful dress-making business through which she has trained ten other girls, employs two people and subcontracts work to other graduates of Seed of Hope.
Be part of this life-transforming work by joining us in April.
Haba Na Haba is an initiative in which everyone can get involved. Every 100Kes ($1, 80p) raised will have an impact. For this small amount we can buy one of the following:
- 3 School Meals.
- Flour For 25 Cups Of Porridge
- 1 Class One Text Book
- 30 Seedlings For Our Agribusiness Students
- 3 Exercise Books
It’s as simple as collecting coins in a coffee cup for the month or organising a non-uniform day at school or a bake sale in the office. Whatever you choose to do, by working together we can make a big difference in the lives of children and young people who need quality education to give them a brighter future.
